It's beginning to look. . .
a lot like Christmas. At least at our home it is. Instead of shopping on "Black Friday," we had a partial day of school, had lots of fun setting up the boys' tree and made our first gingerbread house.
I love seeing the excitement on their little faces and listen to their chatter as they design the tree. They now have a "big tree" instead of the little one which was getting way too small for their ornaments. In January, I found a $180. brand new, 7 1/2', pre-lit tree at Goodwill for $30, and I snatched it up for us. This season, the boys found themselves the proud owners of our old 6' tree. "Ethan's branch" is so telling of a child's motto ~ "More is better!" :-)
